The American Red Cross, in partnership with the state of North Carolina, set up a hurricane shelter at Smith Middle School in Chapel Hill.

Undaunted by Florence, some mobile home residents choose not to evacuate

With Hurricane Florence expected to make landfall on the Carolinas Friday, many Chapel Hill residents, including students, have evacuated. Remembering the effects of Hurricane Matthew, they are taking no chances.  But some have decided to stay, including residents in a mobile home park off Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. Though local experts have said that the hurricane could damage mobile homes more severely, there is resilience to be found among the residents of Tar Heel Mobile Court.
